I was so excited when I got the email about the new Lee Stafford Sea Salt range, mainly because of the Crystal Shampoo. I used to love a sea salt crystal shampoo from Lush but I haven’t had any in years, and this is basically the same but for half of the price at just £6.66 right now. The big pieces of sea salt work to cleanse the scalp allowing the hair to be more voluminous, whilst seaweed adds a shine to the hair. With any sort of voluminous shampoo, you always need a super light conditioner, but I wasn’t expecting the Sea Salt Foam Conditioner (£5.33). It’s very weird but it does leave your hair even shinier and it doesn’t weight it down. Finish off with the Sea Salt Seaweed & Algae Styling Mist (£6.66) in damp hair and scrunch for a beach wavy look.
It was at the incredible Mother’s Day event with Alex Silver PR that I first came across Envy Professional and I was impressed from the start. Both my mum and I had our hair done using their Big Hair Root Volumiser (£14.95) and Style Hero (£14.95), we looked incredible. The Root Volumiser is incredible, you can apply it to damp or dry hair, use a blowdryer and really up the volume. The Style Hero makes your hair dry faster, and protects it at the same time. My mum’s hair was so bouncy and shiny, and I had curls for days. Since then Envy Professional has kindly sent me the Super Oil 3 (£19.95) and just as I expected, that too is amazing. It makes my hair feel amazing and it’s perfect to put on after you’ve curled your hair to make them look healthy and glamorously shiny.
Next up we have the Klorane range and I am seriously annoyed with myself for not knowing about this range sooner. The Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk is by far the BEST dry shampoo I have ever used. Even on my bright red hair! I really thought I had tried them all and that they just weren’t for me, but this completely saves my hair, it allows me to style it normally, and it looks like my usual clean hair. There’s also one with a tint, but I don’t want to add a tint to my bright red, it’d be much better on a more natural hair colour. The products smell gorgeous and I’m especially a ran of the Colour Enhancing Pomegranate Shampoo and Conditioner, as they’re better suited for my hair. However, the Mango Butter Shampoo, Conditioner, and Leave-in Cream have the best scent ever. Prices range from an incredibly affordable £8 – £12 and you can buy the range from Boots.
Marula Oil is one of the most beautiful ranges ever and they have the BEST and most hydrating hair mask I’ve ever tried. I was super excited to try more from the range and so, these 3 beauties arrived. The Marula Oil Rare Oil 3-in-1 Styling Cream (£29.95) is a multi-purpose product that you can can use to treat frizz, nourish your hair, and help create an amazing blow dry. Simply add a tiny amount to damp hair and watch the magic of marula oil. I really wanted to love this Marula Oil Rare Oil Perfecting Hairspray (£22.95) but I need a stronger hold than flexible. It is definitely what it says though, lightweight, frizz fighting, a touchable hold, and it adds a lot of shine. The Rare Oil Style Extending Primer (£29.95) is such a clever product. You spray it onto damp hair from the roots to the ends and it helps to make any hair style last longer. You can use it alone or with other products too.
A couple other things I’ve been trying out lately are these Glamoriser Ultra Styler (£119.99) but it’s definitely not love at first try. They’re not as comfortable to use as my Ghds, and for once, I actually found a styler too hot for my hair! They heat up in an impressive 15 seconds and range from 130°C to 235°C. I’m going to be using these a lot more as I’m sure I’ll love them as much as I love the portable straighteners from Glamoriser.
Something a little bit fun to finish with the Berry Martini Fragranced Brush (£8), I think this would make a perfect present for a cocktail obsessed friend or family member. They really do smell amazing and obviously a small brush comes in handy a lot. It’s very handbag friendly and it leaves your hair with a little bit of the smell too.
